Tips to Stay Warm during Winter in Korea

January 09, 2018

Arctic Bay’s winter parkas and jackets for men and ladies are must-haves for winters in Korea. These outerwear items are made with Canadian down and are made in Canada. No other Canadian-made parkas use Canadian down, Canadian coyote and beaver fur, and leather accessories for flair and style. Korean winters can be extremely icy and chilly, so here are some helpful tips to stay warm.

1. Use Fur Mitts

If you live in a climate with cold-weather like Korea, you’ll want to make sure that your hands are warm. Freezing cold fingertips are no good especially if you need to hold a cup of coffee or get something out of your bag. Frozen hands are uncomfortable as well, so keeping them warm using fur mitts is a great option. At Arctic Bay, we have an assortment of mitts lined with natural shearling sheep skin and finished with either Canadian coyote fur or fox fur.

2. Buy a Canadian-Made Parka for Extreme Cold

As mentioned earlier, Arctic Bay’s men’s and women’s arctic parkas and jackets are extremely warm. They are inspired by the unique Nunavut\Arctic secret-spirit, which makes each jacket exceptionally warm. Choosing the right outerwear for the winter can be a challenge with other brands claiming to be the best. What makes Arctic Bay outerwear so unique, is that it combines protection from the harsh Arctic cold with an incredible obsession for the finest in luxury fashion. The features of the jackets were inspired by the Inuit people of Canada, who use special techniques, passed down by generations to combat the cold and stay warm in harsh climates. This makes these jackets and parkas perfect for Korean winters.

3. Layer Those Legs

Protecting your upper body with a Canadian-made Arctic parka will go a long way, but you can’t forget about your legs. Especially for those who commute or do a lot of walking, keeping your legs warm will ensure that you are comfortable all day long and protected from the weather. Our arctic parkas are long enough to provide incredible protection and warmth for your legs as well. For extra warmth, you should consider wearing two layers on your legs: the first layer should be tights or leggings and the second layer should be a good, thick pair of denim or wool-blend pants.

4. Keep Your Head Warm

If your parka or jacket has a fur hood, you'll be able to keep most of the wind and cold out. Luckily, Arctic Bay’s parkas all feature a non-removal hood with a fur trim and real beaver fur beard guard. Hats are also a great option for keeping your head warm in the winter. There are a variety of materials available, including fur and wool. Those two options are generally warmest and will better keep your body heat in than cotton.
